Remember, no one wants to go to the dentist. Myself included. I'd rather be on the beach. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

No: two-thirds of the existing in vitro studies have reported some degree of increased chromosomal breakage following exposure to illicit or pure lsd. With one exception, these changes were observed with concentrations of lsd and durations of exposure that far exceeded the dosages commonly used in humans. In none of the studies was there a clear dosage-response relationship. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
